  1. 1. LuGus StudiosInnovative Game Technology Robin Marx www.lugus.be
  2. 2. LuGus Studios
  3. 3. LuGus Studios
  4. 4. “Innovative” Technology•  Something truly original?•  Something existing, perfected?•  Something existing, adapted?•  Something existing, new application?“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Arthur  C.  Clarke  
  5. 5. The First Example•  Augmented Reality
  6. 6. The First Example•  Augmented Reality since 1990!•  Perfected through years of research•  Open source packages available Why now?•  Processing power ++•  Rise of the Almighty Apple•  Mindset of the public
  7. 7. More Examples•  1966: Ivan Sutherland invents the head- mounted display•  1915: E. Porter and W. Wadell do the first red-green anaglyph tests•  1989: Gameboy released
  8. 8. The Second Example•  Leap motion and Computer Vision“It’s like Kinect for your hands!”
  9. 9. The Second Example•  Computer Vision since (before) 1982•  Perfected through years of research•  Only now entering consumer market Why now?•  Processing power ++•  Nintendo Wii + Microsoft XBOX•  Mindset of the public
  10. 10. What I’m trying to say…•  Often huge gap between research and consumer application ||•  Huge opportunities for small businesses to “innovate“! –  Technology is perfected and available = Short time to market –  It’s like magic to the public = Easy way in
  11. 11. What I’m trying to say…•  Nice example: Angry Birds•  Rovio made 50+ games!•  Took advantage of new platform•  Now best selling company!•  Stolen idea, simple code, excellent execution!
  12. 12. What I’m trying to say…•  Games are leading the way –  Driving “consumer innovation” –  Extremely challenging and rewardingI don’t want to be a researcher myself…… but big thanks to all the researchers out there! In tech: everyone is on the front-lines
  13. 13. The Final Example
